Boho Indigo DSP Series - Pencil Tin

Boho Indigo Stampin' Up! Pencil Tin

The definition of papercraft according to Wikipedia is: "Paper craft is a collection of crafts using paper or card as the primary artistic medium for the creation of one, two or three-dimensional objects."

As you can see, I don't limit myself to just making cards. I love to make all sorts of projects! 

That's why I have designed 9 different projects for this series. 

There are no cards in the last three projects and I hope you stick with me to see what I've had so much fun creating!

In case you are just catching up, everything I have created in this series predominantly features the gorgeous Boho Indigo patterned paper. 

Unfortunately, I don't have the stamp set and dies from the Product Medley (I've only got the Product Medley Refill), so instead I've demonstrated how this paper can be coupled with many other stamps and dies from Stampin' Up!

Today's project is a simple one but perhaps not so practical. It's a decorated pencil tin and it was fun to make!

I'm not going to pretend this is durable as I doubt it would withstand any day in a backpack.

FYI it's definitely not been created for children.

I created this design using the scrappy technique - using strips of varying widths, of all the different patterns. The pattern order is random, although I made sure there weren't two strips of the darker blue together as I found that more pleasing on the eye 

I've kept the strips straight. The wonky strips that most people use in the scrappy technique look great but I just can't do it as it doesn't sit well with my OCD.

I've used the Stitched Stars dies to cut out the 3 stars. These are popped up on dimensionals for effect, with Gold Gilded Gems added to the centre for a bit of bling. 

In hindsight, the decoration would probably last longer if the stars were stuck directly onto the tin!

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my Pencil Tin project today. I'll be back with handmade cards very soon!

Coming up are the final two projects in the series (my favourites!!!) - the stationery set and decorated wreath. Click here to receive blog posts by email so you don't miss a thing.
